Ever since I’ve started blogging I’ve been wanting a new camera, since the only camera I had was my cellphone. Bare in mind that my phone isn’t new or fancy, so the picture quality wasn’t great. In addition I didn’t know anything about photography and since my pictures looked BAD I rarely ever posted them. Since it is my birthday this month my husband bought me a new camera, the Canon EOS 750D. In addition his mother is an avid bird watcher and also wanted a new camera, so she got herself the Nikon Coolpix P900.
I’m not going to go into the specifications of the two camera’s since you can find that anywhere on the internet. What you can’t find however are pictures quality of the two camera’s. Since I had access to both I’ll now share the different pictures.
First off the Coolpix has some amazing zoom. In the first picture you can’t even see the tower on the mountain we are trying to capture.
The Tower on the mountain is currently between the two big buildings
Zooming much further you can actually see the tower on the mountain.
The weather was really misty but the camera still zooms to the extend that you’ll be able to see people on the tower if there were any.
That same night we photographed the moon since it was a supermoon.
Picture 1 is the view from our bedroom window without any zoom with the Nikon Coolpix
Picture 2 Zoomed
Picture 3. Zoomed but not fully zoomed since my husband said you can’t see it’s the moon if you zoom much further than that.
Coolpix VS Canon Pictures.
The picture on the left is the Coolpix and on the right the Canon
I’ve tried to keep the angles the same, but it’s not easy, I didn’t zoom in with the Coolpix since I wanted to see what the quality was like.
The quality is very similar, personally I’m very happy with my Canon and won’t exchange it for the Coolpix even if I got it free but it depends what you’re using the camera for. In my opinion if you’re going to take travel or landscape pictures then rather go for the Coolpix but if you’re more into capturing details without having to zoom, then go for the Canon. In the end its up to you and your purpose for using the camera.
